Who Lives there at night was a short film which I made with colleagues for Straight 8's 2016 competition on one cartridge of Kodak vision3 200t super 8 film with only in-camera edits and no post-production. It was shortlisted to be premiered on the big screen at Straight 8's Vue Piccadilly screening. The original idea was to pay homage to 70’s & 80’s low budget video nasties style horror films like the “The Beyond”, “Evil Dead” and “Suspiria“.
I developed a basic story around an evil cult who captured women and sacrificed them to an evil demonic creature. I made sure the storyboard developed the characters. I decided that making it in a trailer format for a film that didn’t exist would give greater opportunities for a variety of scenes and locations and would ease the challenges of editing, length of the film and syncing up audio playing into the direction and tone of the short and not hinder it.
